Do you have knee pain from your new COVID running habit??
Did you take to the road when COVID hit and gyms shut down? 🏃♀️
Needed to get out of the house, so you picked up running... either for the first time, or for the first time in a long time??
Are you now paying the price of pounding the pavement?
Months later we are now hearing a lot of our clients complain of new knee pain due to their new COVID activities. Often when we jump into new activities or different terrain (treadmill vs road), our bodies aren’t actually ready for them.
Most people think that running, because there isn’t much to it, is something we can just walk out the door and do. Which is true...but if you don’t have the proper strength, stability, or mobility you most likely will find yourself eventually suffering from knee pain, hip tightness, back soreness, or Achilles problems.
The biggest mistake I see people make is that they run to get in shape and not the other way around.
We should strengthen to run, not run to strengthen.
If there are weaknesses in your core, hips or ankles PRIOR to you running, they are likely only going to get worse... AND cause other problems in addition, resulting in aches and pains you weren’t expecting and now don’t know how to get rid of.
If you want to find out if you are strong enough to run, join our 5 day challenge where we will be walking you through a self assessment for knee pain. Email us to opt-in!
If you find some areas of pain, dysfunction or weakness when going through these tests, join us for our FREE Workshop in which we will explain the importance of this assessment, and what you can do to prevent injury when running!
Have you been told your joints are bone on bone and you may need a joint replacement??
Let me guess - your first line of attack was a series of cortisone injections?
Maybe that band-aid helped, but only for a little bit... and now you may be facing major surgery but are still wondering if there is anything else that can be done.
(Spoiler: there IS something else that can be done).
What if I told you that no matter how long you’ve been suffering, there is a 90% chance that your pain is NOT caused by “bone on bone” joints...
What?? You say...how could that be??
But I saw the MRI...my doctor pointed it out...
Yes, we hear this ALL the time from clients wanting to avoid surgery and I can confidently tell you, we have helped them not only get rid of the pain, but become much more active and mobile AND avoid surgery all together!!
How is that possible???
Often times what we see on an image (MRI, X-ray, etc) is only a very small piece to the puzzle. The image is only looking at one thing: the joint. It’s not taking into consideration the muscles surrounding the joint that have been compensating for years and years, which have then slowly affected the way you walk, which has then changed the position of your pelvis (your posture), which then pisses off your hip and low back muscles, which then adds MORE stress back on the knee.
You get the point...
This might be one of my BIGGEST frustrations in the orthopedic world . Doctors will just nonchalantly recommend injections and surgeries without EVER considering what caused this joint deterioration in the first place!!
Joint replacements AREN’T NORMAL!
Joint replacements are not just a part of life...
If your car has poor alignment and is wearing your left tires down unevenly... do you just change the tires, knowing it will just happen again? Or do you fix the alignment, the true reason why the tires are wearing in the first place??
Of course you fix the alignment of your tires. So why do we just “change the tires” on our bodies??
Cars are replaceable. Our bodies are not - and joints shouldn’t be either.

With the current shift to working from home this year, many of us are forced to work from our kitchen tables, couches, and even beds. Before this pandemic, the average American was sitting about 6.5 hours per day. These days, many of us who are now working from home are not only sitting more, we’re also no longer sitting correctly without office luxuries, our usual work stations, chairs, and desk setups. Does this sound familiar?
Have YOU been experiencing more back pain since working from home?
Do you find yourself working from your bed, your couch, or dining room table, and unable to find a comfortable solution? Do you think this is common and something you’ll have to just ‘deal with’? A poor work set up and improper sitting for long periods are large contributors to neck and back pain. If this is something you are experiencing, you are not alone, and there IS a solution.
Here are the top 4 common mistakes you are likely making with your work from home set up - AND some expert advice from a physical therapist on how you can change these habits to help alleviate your pain!
#1: Not using a desk!
If you have found yourself working at home without a desk, this is likely a large contributor to your neck or back pain. Our dining room, kitchen tables, and couches were not designed with ergonomics in mind. That cute dining room chair was not designed with an 8 hour work day in mind! Working without a desk can lead to poor posture, slouching, and ultimately a lot of strain on your neck and back. Over time this can lead to the pain, soreness and tightness you are feeling.
#2: Moving your ‘work space’ from room to room throughout the day.
Have you been trying to move throughout your living space during the work day, searching for a comfortable position to work in? Moving from room to room seems like a good idea... but in reality, you are likely just moving between slouched positions in each workspace. The spot on the floor in front of your couch is putting just as much strain on your neck and back as the dining room table!
#3: Relying on your laptop...
If you are working remotely from your laptop, this can be another large contributor to your neck and/or back pain. Laptops were designed just for that - the lap. The attached keyboard and low monitor position is not designed for a full work day. This screen positioning causes us to crane our necks forward, and the attached keyboard does not allow for readjustments and can cause strain in shoulders and neck.
#4: Taking calls from your cell phone
...especially while also typing, writing, or making lunch.... all while holding the phone between your shoulder and ear! Holding this position for any amount of time creates tension not only in you neck & upper back but also in your jaw... which can lead to a whole new set of symptoms.
So how do you fix these common mistakes? How can you set up a workspace that will help - not hurt - your back and neck throughout the day?
And even more importantly... what is the root cause of this pain in the first place? Even though slouching on the couch during your work day may be new, and has likely been a large contributor to your current pain, it's not necessarily the cause... just the most recent factor that has brought to the surface a recurring problem. The real question is... what's the underlying cause?
That’s where we come in. Join us for a FREE virtual workshop with back pain expert and physical therapist, Dr. Casey Murphy. Register here to learn more about how to fix these top 4 mistakes AND how to prevent your back pain from ever coming back again!
Join us on Tuesday August 18th at 4pm (MST) for this free workshop and ask a physical therapist YOUR questions about back pain and working from home.
“What’s better... yoga or Pilates?”
This is a question I get asked all the time by clients. The answer would depend on what you are looking for. For most of my clients, people who are recovering from some sort of persistent ache or pain or injury, it’s almost always Pilates (if they had to choose only one).
They are both great, but here’s why, as a Physical Therapist, I prefer Pilates and how I describe the difference to my clients...
Generally speaking, yoga is much more about holding positions to increase flexibility. In yoga there isn't a large focus on strength or stability. This is great if your muscles are tight or if you carry a lot of stress and tension. But with that in mind, remember that there is always a reason why we feel like we always need to stretch... muscles don’t just get tight for no reason. And with my clients, we work together to find the true cause - the real reason why their low back or hips keep getting tight over and over again - so that together we can get to the deeper root of the problem and get rid of that constant need to stretch.
In contrast, Pilates is all about improving our posture alignment while finding and building strength and stability through all the ranges of movement. And as a result, it actually improves flexibility while also giving you that long, lean, and toned body. Pilates builds core strength from the inside out and teaches us how to move our bodies on a solid foundation, thus making our movements stronger and more efficient. The more stable we are, the more protected we are from future injuries.
And that’s the magic... when every movement is most efficient, we reduce the stress being placed on our joints (caused by muscle imbalances and misalignments) which not only helps us recover from injury but also is the best way to prevent injuries from happening in the first place.
Yoga = flexibility.
Pilates = posture and core strength (and injury prevention).
And if you combine Pilates with physical therapy? Talk about a recipe for success and everlasting relief from those aches and pains you can’t seem to get rid of.
I do love yoga, don’t get me wrong. It has so many amazing benefits. However, if you practice yoga too much and become too flexible, it could have some negative consequences on your health and lead you to injury. A common injury I see a lot in yogis is SI pain or back pain. Why?Because yogis are extremely flexible, but their bodies don’t know how to support all that movement. This extreme flexibility does not allow for our movements to be very efficient, stable, or strong. All that energy is lost and it ends up putting more stress on certain joints.
So if you're interested in long lasting injury prevention and strength, and if you want to fix the root cause of your tight spots (not just the symptom), consider Pilates. At Empower, we want to make sure you are confident in your choice. So if you're interested in trying Pilates but still have a few questions, try us out first - for free!

Did somebody tell you that peeing your pants while you exercise, sneeze, or run to the toilet is normal after you've had a baby?
If so, I'm here to tell you some good news:
This is NOT normal!
It's super common but not normal and there IS something you can do about it.
When I first met Melissa, she told me that she has two kids and wants to go back to her exercise class but is afraid....
"I pee when I work out and I can't stomach the embarrassment, not to mention I have had allergies this spring and every time I cough or sneeze it is almost impossible to keep my pants dry.”
Melissa is a forty-three-year-old busy mom of two kids (5 and 7). She didn't remember leaking being as pronounced a problem when she first had her kids but when we first met she was leaking all the time and was constantly worried that people would notice the smell. She wore pads and always always always carries extra clothes. The doctor told her after she had kids that the symptoms would go away but her youngest was five and it had only gotten worse. She joked around with her friends, and a few shared that they had the same concerns too. Melissa was afraid that this may just be a normal part of having babies but then it started getting progressively worse and she began to think about what life might look like as she got older...
Could this be happening to you too?
Ordinary incontinence is a loss of urine when you are not intending to go. There are three main types: urge incontinence, stress incontinence, or mixed urinary incontinence.
Urge incontinence is increased frequency... meaning that you go to the bathroom more than 10 times in a 24 hr period. (A normal range of frequency is 6 to 8 times during a 24 hr period). If you have urge incontinence, this also means you could be triggered and feel an urge to go when you hear running water... or even when you put the key in the door when you get home and automatically think you have to go so bad you're afraid you might pee your pants.
Stress incontinence is a loss of urine when sneezing, coughing, jumping, running ,or any kind of increased pressure to the system.
Mixed urinary incontinence is a combination of both.
Another important measure of health - in general, when you pee the urine should flow easily without discomfort in a good, steady stream until the bladder is empty. No pushing or straining should be necessary to empty the bladder.
Unfortunately Melissa suffered with this for a long time. She resisted taking medication because she didn't want to deal with the side effects. She went to the chiropractor and her acupuncturist but didn't see any improvement. She did kegels - all the kegels. Her doctor told her she wasn't a candidate for surgery until she was sure she was done having babies. Deep down, even though she knew she was done, she didn't want this one surgery to be the final ticket that secured her fertility future.
After years of disappointment, shame, and constant embarrassment she finally got the help she needed. Melissa gained a new sense of confidence and even new energy - she was finally able to workout (she calls her barre class her therapy) and felt like a whole new person.
Here's what helps Melissa:
By taking a big picture, full body approach to rehabilitation Melissa was finally able to heal and enjoy her busy life of keeping up with the kids. Today she is so much healthier because she is no longer keeping herself out of exercise classes.

Summer is here and I'm thankful for the chance to get out with the family and get some exercise, all while enjoying fresh mountain air. The front range has some great hiking trails that are just a short drive away from Denver. Here are some of my family's favorite hikes to try out this summer!
Be sure to go in the early morning to avoid the heat. And bring lots of water!
Bear Creek Trail at Lair O’ The Bear Park
Lair O' the Bear, in our family’s opinion, is the best family hike near Denver. First, the drive into the canyon on Bear Creek road is beautiful. Once at the park you’ll find great hiking trail options, the cool water of bear creek, great parking, and some good picnic spots. There are open areas as well as shade. Our one big suggestion is to keep your kiddos close to you on the busier trail segments as this is also a mountain biking mecca. You'll find maps and parking information here. I recommend making the trek to Panorama Point if you have the time!
Chimney Gulch Trail at Windy Saddle Park
It’s a demanding hike up Chimney Gulch near Golden, Colorado, but the views at the top are worth the workout. This hiking trail crosses streams as it zigzags up the side of local landmark, Lookout mountain. Explore this hike profile for the trail map and all the details and tips that you’ll need to get out the door and hike Chimney Gulch.
Clear Creek Trail in Downtown Golden
The Clear Creek Trail in Golden Colorado is it! It’s got shade, the kids can bring their bikes, and you can finish your hike with a stroll around downtown. We might get some flack for calling this a hike, because it runs through the business district of Golden... But you can wear the soles of your shoes down on this one. Jefferson County even has plans to expand the trail several miles into Clear Creek Canyon, and construction is well under way. See more details about walking along the creek here.
North Table Mountain Trails
When the sun rises over the North Table Mountain, you’ll see this mesa rising above the town of Golden, Colorado. A vast network of trails awaits hikers, mountain bikers, and nature photographers. This is a perfect hike near Denver for when you don’t have much time on your hands but need some fresh air. While the trails on Table Mountain are accessible all year round, the best time to hike it is in early Summer when wild flowers start to bloom. Check out this detailed description of the hike, the Table Mountain trail map, and driving directions so that you can explore this unique Colorado hike.

Let's put some miles on those hiking boots this summer!
Dr. Casey Murphy
Can you believe it’s already June?? Time hasn't felt quite the same recently. Is that just me?
Summer is in full force, which means everyone has gotten back outside to enjoy the beautiful (and today, HOT) Colorado weather. But with your return to biking, hiking, or gardening... especially after months of staying indoors on the couch.... you might be noticing a few new (or returning) aches and pains.
The past week I've talked to so many people calling to say their back has “flared up” again or they just can’t enjoy their favorite outdoor activities like they used to without popping pain killers.
Because so maybe people are suffering from debilitating back pain right now - maybe that's you, or maybe you have a friend you can share this with - I wrote you this blog with some simple tips to help ease those aches and pains.
Back pain is something you never think will happen to YOU... until it does!
You’re going about your day without concern. Then suddenly… you feel a twinge in your back and you know immediately that something is not right.
Your first thought is that it’s nothing and that it will go away on its own. You probably blame a poor night’s sleep or a muscle strain from doing chores around the house. The truth is when back pain “just happens out of nowhere” most of us have no idea or explanation to why. When it strikes, it leaves you suffering for longer than you ever imagined!
What do you do when the pain suddenly stops you in your tracks? Most people do one of two things:
1. Nothing... and hope the pain “goes away” by the next morning.
2. Resort to pain pills every few hours for days!
Neither of these are good options nor do they address the root cause of the pain.
So let’s talk about it – there are so many different ways of finding pain relief other than pain pills or rest. I want to share some options with you that I teach my clients all the time so you can find relief NATURALLY— without relying on pain killers!
My first tip to help ease back pain is to avoid sitting with your legs crossed. Look around, we all do it. However, this causes strain on your back as you twist and turn your hips and spine. Sit straight with both of your feet placed on the floor slightly in front of your knees. This will help relieve pressure on the spine.
Another easy one to fix is your sleeping position! Do you sleep on your stomach? This is the worst possible position to sleep in with back pain and it will prevent you from getting better… Avoid this position at all costs and you will sleep better and wake up with less back pain.
On the topic of sleep, try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees and a small hand towel rolled up under your waist. This might be difficult to get used to at first, but if you can keep doing it, it decreases the amount of twisting and sagging of your spine. And if you sleep on your back, try placing a pillow or yoga bolster under your knees to reduce the tension in your lower back.
Your core muscles are a huge part of your spinal anatomy and are very important when it comes to managing back pain. If we don’t use our core with day to day activities and protect our back, we’re likely to experience more aches and pains further on down the road. Pilates can be a great tool for learning how to correctly engage and strengthen your deep core muscles.
In the same way that you brush your teeth twice a day to look after them, you need to look after your back. Try incorporating these simple daily routines to help ease and live with less back pain.
I can’t promise you that ALL these things will work for you, but I do know these tips have been proven to help my patients (and myself) to reduce the risk of back pain! If someone you know is suffering from back pain, please pass this information on to them as these tips will help!

When it comes to the CORE, most of us need to go back to the basics.
This is especially for YOU if you're athletic...
You have probably heard of the core and been told that it should be a part of your workout routine... right? I find this to be true for the most of the people I see. Everyone is aware that they need to add core strengthening or ab workouts into their life. However, most of them are doing exercises that are not beneficial (that’s for another post) and might even be harming them in the long run....
So we’ve heard about the core and we know we should do something about it...
But do we truly know what it is, why it's important, how to connect to it, and what is the most effective way to strengthen it?
As a physical therapist and pilates instructor I have a lot of people coming to me for low back pain, running injuries, pelvic floor dysfunction, and shoulder or knee injuries.... and the common factor with MOST of these clients is that they have some sort of dysfunction with their “core”. And usually it starts with a lack of knowing what the core actually involves (hint: it's not your six pack), and how to truly connect with it…
"What do you mean, don’t I just crunch??” Um, no.
Ok, so what is the core?
The core consists of four muscle groups: your diaphragm, your transverse abdominis, your pelvic floor, and the muscles along your spine called the multifidi. Together these all work together and form a cylinder-like system, kind of like a soda can. This is your inner core.
Your inner core system is responsible for regulating your intra-abdominal pressure as well as providing support, control, and stability to the spine and pelvis. In other words, this system is protecting you and preventing you from getting injured or suffering from back pain, hip pain, even knee or ankle pain.
And because most of us aren’t aware of the inner core, our brain isn't telling it to do it’s job... at least not well. This results in other muscles jumping in to “help out” and provide extra stability and support when those core muscles aren’t. And this is no good - this compensation just leads to poor form, overworking certain muscles (maybe that “tightness” that you are feeling), and eventually... pain.
Ok so I hear you already asking, “Why should I care about this, I’m doing just fine with my workouts/running/daily activities?”
Everything might be all fine and good now, but months or years from now all of this compensation may catch up to you. I like to think of it as the foundation of a house... if you have a massive crack in the foundation you would really never know... you could continue making it pretty with a new roof, fresh paint, beautiful landscaping, etc. Then one day, out of the blue, your basement walls come crumbling down. All the time, money, and effort you put in has now gone to waste. All because (unknowingly) you were ignoring a major underlying issue that would have been very easily spotted by a home inspector or contractor and thus could have been dealt with appropriately, avoiding all of this.
If you have even minor back pain, hip “tightness”, any other aches or pains, had a baby, or had abdominal surgery.... there is a high likelihood you have a crack in your foundation.
So what do you do about it? I recommend seeing a licensed physical therapist for an evaluation to help you determine if there are any red flags present that could lead to an injury in the future and to check to see how well you are able to “connect to your core”. They will then get you back on track as well as provide you with the education and tools to prevent anything happening in the future.

Over 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And many of those people will have recurring episodes of back pain. The pain subsides, they think they’re out of the woods and then 6 months later it comes back. And then it goes away….and then only 3 months later it comes back and now it’s not going away so fast. And so on and so on.
And the person gets increasingly frustrated each time the pain comes back and now they worry about it happening just about every day. They can’t enjoy the active lifestyle they once had because either they physically can’t do those things anymore or even if they can, they are afraid it will cause the pain to come back.
So why does the pain go away for a while and then come back?
Here are the 5 reasons I have come across most often in my 10+ years of treating athletes and active people:
1. You Haven't Actually Done Anything to Fix the Problem..
This is by far the most common reason people’s back pain cycles on and off. When I meet people and tell them what I do for a living (physical therapist), so many people go on to tell me about their back pain and how it’s annoying, frustrating, etc. And when I ask them what they have done for it, the typical response is nothing… or they've just been taking pain meds!
How can you expect your pain problem to get better if all you do for it is say a prayer at night and hope it will go away on its own!?
And the more people have talked to me about their back problem (really any problem), I realize that a lot of people choose not to do anything because they simply don’t know which of the many options out there is the best choice for them. And they’re afraid of making the wrong decision or confused about where to start. So instead, they live in this paralyzing state of indecision and continued pain that limits their active lifestyle.
This is why I set up my clinic to offer a few different free options to help people BEFORE they commit to us. It’s a way for people to learn what they can do for their problem and see what option works best for them.

2. Past Treatment(s) Didn't Address the Underlying Issue
Have you received some form of treatment in the past for your back pain, only for that pain to come back later?
There's a good chance that the treatment you received (i.e. injections, medications, unspecific/rushed PT, etc.) only took care of the symptoms (your pain) and didn't address the underlying reason for your problem.
It's like having someone help you bail water out of your sinking ship versus having someone help you plug the hole. It's the difference between constantly having to worry about it happening again and being able to enjoy the things you love to do without worry.
3.You Didn't Follow Through With Your Treatment Plan and/or "Homework"
There are times when someone is getting great treatment that is working on the underlying cause, but when they start to feel much better, they decide to stop the treatment plan early...and a few months later they're back in with a "flare-up." And this "flare-up" may have been avoided had they seen their treatment plan all the way through and not quit just when the pain went away. Remember, addressing the underlying issue is key!
Other times, people don't do their physical therapy "homework" - the tips and advice given to them to do on their own time. If you see us 2 x week for an hour each time, that's only 2% of your entire week. What you do in the other 98% will have a HUGE effect on your outcome.
4. You Progressed Your Activity Level Too Quickly
Another classic reason for someone's back pain to come back... they start feeling a lot better so they decide that a 10 mile bike ride is okay to do... even though they haven't ridden in a couple months. Or they're feeling good because they're finally back to their at home workouts... and they decide the "boot camp" class that's free on youtube is a great idea. Or a friend asks them to do a charity 5k with them... I men, it's for charity so it's got to be ok, right!?
You're probably chuckling right now... not because the examples are that funny, but because you know you've been guilty of this too.
I understand that when the pain starts to go away, you get excited to do the things you love again. Our job is to help you make sure your activity level makes sense with your treatment plan - both short and long-term.

5. The Rest of Your Life Isn't Healthy
You don't sleep well. You're stressed. You work too much. You don't eat well. You get the idea...
All these things play a role in your recovery and can affect your expected outcome - both the amount of relief expected and the time it will take to get that relief. We're here to help you find ways to live a healthier lifestyle year long, life long... not just for 3 weeks! Here at Empower, we're all about results that LAST.
So there you have it - the 5 most common reasons back pain comes back. I hope this article is able to help you make a better decision for your health and if you think a friend or family member would benefit from reading this (or needs to read it), feel free to forward it to them.
Let's work toward results that LAST.

Do you sometimes laugh so hard that you pee just a little?
Are you always wearing a panty liner to workout or play with the kids “just in case”?
Do you feel like it’s getting weak down there as you get older?
Well, ladies... you’re NOT alone.
Many women suffer from what we call stress urinary incontinence which is just a fancy way to say you pee or leak urine when you cough, sneeze, laugh, jump, or exercise.
This is very COMMON among women, especially those that have given birth, but it is NOT NORMAL. I will repeat that... this is NOT NORMAL and we can help.
You don’t have to live the rest of your life worrying about working out in groups. Or laughing too hard with the ladies. Or having to remember if you brought any panty liners with you. And you don’t have to fear the dreaded trampoline with the kids.
Those embarrassing moments CAN end and NEED to end!
You CAN improve this pretty easily, in fact... and I don’t care how old you are!
Why is this happening then??
Stress urinary incontinence happens when there is an excessive amount of stress on the bladder that the pelvic floor can not withstand. And this happens because there is a failure in one or all parts of the “system”, which is the deep core. I talk more about that here.
Please don’t ignore this.
The longer women wait the harder it will be to fix and the more problems it can cause. Most of my clients have put it off for 10, 15, even 20 years. But that’s not really their fault...they didn’t know any better.
They have never been told by any doctors, OBGYNs, or other health care professionals that this is a problem and that there IS help out there for it. Sadly, our society has totally normalized this issue because we are too uncomfortable to talk about and actually address it.
But not to worry! If this sounds like you and you’re thinking you’re doomed, think again. We have helped so many women that have suffered for years.
Take Kristen for example...
She is 43 years old and has three kids - aged 13, 8, and 6. She runs and works out a few days a week but has to wear a pad EVERY time she is active because she will leak right through it.
She was worried it would get so bad that she would be wearing pads all day every day for the rest of her life... and she isn't even that old yet!
When Kristen heard about us from a friend she was so excited that there was help for her...
After only a few sessions she had so much more confidence and LESS leakage! Kristen is no longer worried about the future of relying on pads or anxious about another embarrassing moment.
There is HOPE for you too!
